The Times of Israel 20 November 2012

JTA — Police in Malmo have no suspects in September’s attack on the Swedish city’s Jewish community center after dropping charges against two suspects. Anders Lindell, a police spokesman, said that all charges were dropped against the 18-year-old men who were arrested shortly after the Sept. 28 attack.

"We have concluded the suspects could not have done it,” he said. "The investigation is ongoing.”

The two were arrested shortly after an explosion was heard outside the JCC, which also houses a day school for Jewish children. The bullet-proof entrance door was smashed in the incident.

Police at first declined to define the attack as anti-Semitic, but eventually classified it as a hate crime. (continue reading...)
